Hi guys,

I'm having this problem also.

My best guess is that mono/mcs from svn has changed recently so that now
it won't allow or doesn't like types from different versions of

>From what I gather, MozillaControl is from gecko# which links against
Gtk-sharp 1.0, and Monodevelop links against Gtk-sharp 2.0. So
MozillaControl is apparently not a valid gtk-sharp 2 Gtk.Widget, even
though it is a valid gtk-sharp 1 Gtk.Widget.

mmarker said he was working on making gecko# link agains gtk-sharp 2, I
hope this is the fix to the problem, but am not sure, because I am still
unable to get it to work, and am pretty sure gecko# still links against
gtk-sharp 1.
